General amiibo Discussion Thread
amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.

I'm on the hunt for a Little Mac and a Rosalina & Luma figure, for my kids. If anyone has any to sell, let me know.

I was able to snag a Pac-Man from Wal-Mart today. Got all three third-party characters now. w00t

So all of my Meta Knight whining seems to have paid off. Ploot was kind enough to get a hold of one off of Best Buy Canada today on my behalf!

Call of the dogs! Thanks everyone for putting up with me on this subject. Hopefully this will not happen with further Amiibo.

20 PLUS shipping? Why so much? I'm shying away from that..but check with Beardednerd. I think he needed one still?

I appreciate it though, yes. I'm doing my best to work within MSRP. I know sometimes that isn't possible (DAMN YOU NESS, DAMN YOUUUUU), but yeah. We're still expecting US stores to get some in, right? I gotta call my store tomorrow and ask 'em.

So yeah, officially passing on this one, but I'll take the next train if the price is right. (Again; thanks, really!)



Well there we have it!

The exchange rate. then I gotta ship it to you.

I'll cancel the preorder then. Bearednerd doesn't need one and you're passing. Fair enough.

Thanks for getting back to me quick.

Well, my crazy wife, after calling in sick today (she really is sick, thanks to me) went on the hunt this morning and nabbed most of the available amiibo for me. She did not get Ness or Robin or Lucina, but apparently that's not at all surprising. She did get an extra Jigglypuff, though. She still hates the dang things, but she loves to make me happy. What a gal!


I've got an extra Rosalina with your name on it, if you'd like.

Just grabbed Pac-Man and Inkling Boy on Amazon. Didn't figure Robin would be realistic, and it seems I was right. Really the only must haves left for me are Ganondorf and Shulk. Shame the Fire Emblem characters get four figures made per character.

Knowing what we know now, are there any characters we should look for straggling tomorrow still?

My Toys R Us was (was) packed with Greninjas. Found a stash of Jigglypuff's about 25 minutes from my house, too.
How in demand are the Squid folk? My GameStop just had them sitting there, no competition.

I've got a 3-Pack coming in the mail, too.

Considering posting on Reddit in their exchange thread. Obviously I'd rather deal with / HELP you guys out, but "Marth 2nd Printing for Ness" isn't getting too many bites here. Worrisome day. :-/
05/30/15, 06:10   
Shoot, I can't cancel because of how Best Buy Canada works. I'd have to go to Canada to return it or sell it still.

Well, if anyone needs a Meta Knight, it'll be one of the ones I have available for sale. $20+shipping.

I'll take it off your hands. I still need Meta Knight, so why not. You have done so much for us goofballs!
05/30/15, 06:44   

Mighty kind of you Brandon! Will do. It arrives at Ploot's on Wed, then I have to actually go visit Canada to pick it up. So it wont be immediate if that's ok. But I hope to go hang with him and Beardednerd sometime soon.
05/30/15, 07:11   
Finally, a solution arrives, so everyone can buy their favorite amiibos!

05/30/15, 08:04   
Nice! All's well that ends well.
05/30/15, 15:46   
Just got some news that I'm driving into Best Buy right now to check out in person.

I'd suggest you do the same...

EDIT- The Eagle Has Landed. x2.

EDIT2- ....call your Best Buy about Meta Knight. Mine had 10 when I got there.

(Again, thanks Fink!)

And just to double check before I stick my foot into Reddit, nobody has an extra Ness for Marth re-print or Meta Knight re-print, right? I'd like to help you guys first. I got another guy locally (who I told about the site before, but apparently never showed up, so if he did, he could've just saw this firsthand!) is willing to trade a bunch of stuff. He has a Robin and Lucina ready to walk; I'm gonna call him in a few minutes, maybe I can trade on your behalf?

Lemme know..

So I missed out on the Splatoon 3-Pack on Amazon, I'm going to walk to the Gamestop today and see if they have it, LOL what a joke, going to GS the day after an Amiibo release, haha, #amateurhour
05/30/15, 19:00   

I don't think that 3-Pack is as rare as people say.
05/30/15, 19:04   
I hope not! It sold out on Amazon almost immediately, going for $60 now! Freaking scalpers.
05/30/15, 19:08   
GameStop didn't have the 3-pack, the manager was very nice and apologetic, apparently they got 24 boys, 24 girls, and only 2 3-packs, 2.

Why Nintendo? Why?

EDIT: GS #2 said they only got 1 3-pack, ONE.


EDIT 2: Best Buy: bust. Target: bust.

EDIT 3: Found the Boy and Girl, settled for that, guess I'll never get the squid because Nintendo decided they still want to make things scarce in some idiotic scheme to increase demand instead of serving their customers. Thanks Nintendo! Thanks for causing me all kinds of frustration instead of making the Splatoon launch a fun event.

Wanna give this a jingle jangle? Not sure how everything works, but yeah:

Spaltoon 3-Pack - Tokyo Otaku
(Free Shipping for new customers!)
05/30/15, 22:16   
I should have a spare 3 pack. I just haven't announced what I have because nothing not all of it has come in yet. So if you haveent opened those and you really want a 3 pack I can probably help you out.

Id be asking for what i paid plus shipping. Not looking to make a profit. Let me look into it. Let me know if your interested.
